               Bradley M. Kuhn To Keynote GUADEC & OpenSym 2016
In the next ten days, Bradley M. Kuhn, Distinguished Technologist at
Software Freedom Conservancy, will keynote two conferences in Germany —
GUADEC 2016 and OpenSym 2016.

On Friday 12 August 2016 in Karlsruhe, Germany, Kuhn will deliver a
keynote at the GNOME Users and Developers European Conference (GUADEC)
2016 entitled "Confessions of a Command-Line Geek: Why I Don’t Use GNOME
But Everyone Else Should". Kuhn will discuss the incredible importance
of the GNOME desktop project to the future of software freedom, despite
that so much of “Open Source” now focuses on infrastructure projects
rather than applications and GUIs.

On Wednesday 17 August 2016 at 15:30 in Berlin, Germany, Kuhn will
deliver a keynote entitled "Politics of Cooption in Free and Open
Communities" at The International Symposium on Open Collaboration
(OpenSym) 2016. Kuhn's keynote there will discuss how the advent of
cooption of software freedom by for-profit companies and their trade
associations has created a complex political system, and how other
communities inspired by software freedom may soon face similar

Kuhn thanks the organizers of both conferences from graciously inviting
him to join other excellent keynoters at both events, and for the
opportunity to share an essential message of software freedom with both
of this important communities. Conservancy enthusiasts and supporters
are encouraged to attend these events; registration details are
available on the respective conference's websites.
